At BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard revealed the next character for Overwatch, a support character named Moira. Then yesterday, Blizzard revealed that Moira was on the PTR and ready to be tested by players. Blizzard has done this with many of the major updates, and it’s a good thing too, as player feedback has helped shape the game for the better. So with this new character, players happily jumped on and made their feelings known for better or for worse.
On Reddit, user NaboRosa made their thoughts on the character known. Mainly that it doesn’t “feel” as though Moira is healing when she uses her spray ability. As it was, it would look like a gas, but with no indication that things were happening. Many other Redditors agreed with this, and the post got 10.9k upvotes on Reddit.
Well, Blizzard heard then, and now, Moira’s spray heal has a sound effect that matches Mercy when she heals a companion. So you see? The process works!
But that doesn’t mean that was the only complaint for Moira. While some were happy that the healing sound was added, some are now wondering if her right click ability, where she drains an opponent, should have an appropriate sound as well. One suggestion was sucking sound from Symmetra.
Another issue with the healing spray was the color. Some Overwatch players don’t like the color of it, saying it looks like urine. We can see why that would be disgusting to use.
Other issues concern her ability to kill enemies. They believe that when she does this, she should get a healing charge boost, and others feel she should get a damage boost so that she’s even more effective in battle.
